Hi drifter, thank you for quick answer. Two years is quite a long time to wait for libido to come back, but I'm glad you have it back now :)

My fiance took this for 8 months, not sure of dosage but more than you took, he was a zombie. I had to fight to get him off, and finally 2 months later he was more like the man I fell in love with, but not affectionate yet and no sex drive. 4 months though yeay! Sex again and much more affectionate! Not great sex for me mind you, he's so sensitive I guess? He doesn't last long at all. But that's okay, he's doing better and it will improve!  So hang in there, thank the Great and Wonderful Lord, its not permanent!

Well, according to my experience, risperdel reduced my sex drive slowly and made it nil. I used it for one year. Then I returned back to seroquel and again sex drive came back. Talking about sex, my sexual was extremely good when i was in my country, But never had sex because prostitution is illegal in my country. So i used to do mas........... It gave me extremely pleasure. But when i came to abroad,  i m modified and diagnosed, Then I started to realize the main secret of western life. And all the answers I started to know after sex because it was extremely painful at the beginning. I found that in abroad people hearts has been modified may be in childhood. Which reduces the pleasure. Then i became positive to naked world and highly madly and deeply impressed. It has lots of good result such as less nervous, less spontaneous, rare rape cases, male and female friendly, doesn't nervous while handshake, hug, etc. life is die or shy
